Designed enzyme preparations for the hydrolysis of corn silage polysaccharides

K.G. Neumüller

Research output: Thesisinternal PhD, WU


This thesis describes the design of hemicellulolytic enzyme preparations with high activity towards the rather recalcitrant xylan present in corn silage, a major biogas feedstock. Also, recalcitrance factors towards the enzymatic conversion of xylans, varying in type and level of substitution, are addressed.
